Old Macedonia Cemetery

Joe Abernathy and Irena "Rena" Stroup Abernathy


Irena "Rena" Stroup Abernathy, wife of Joe Abernathy, daughter of Elisha Stroup and Jane McGinnis.

Obituary for Irena Abernathy states that she was buried next to her husband in Macedonia Cemetery. At this time, I have no information on Joe Abernathy.

1910 U.S. Census, Bartow County, Georgia lists her as a widow, living with her son Edward.

Death certificate lists her as the daughter of Elisha Stroup. Obituary and death certificate both lists her as being buried at Old Macedonia. She and her husband are most likely buried in unmarked graves.
